One week after Belmar.

Outgoing call to Caleigh Davenport:

"Hey, this is Caleigh. Sorry I can't get to the phone right now, but if you leave your name and number, I'll get back to you as soon as I can. Leave a message in three, two--"

Hey, Caleigh.

It's Alex.

I just wish I could be more okay than I am.

'Cause I--

I really um...

Sorry, I didn't want to cry on the phone, but I'm kind of having a hard time because he's not---
